According to Consumer Reports, York International has re-announced a recall of gas furnaces made for manufactured homes following 393 incident calls since the furnaces were manufactured 1995-2000. 336 of the calls have come in since 2004, when the first recall was announced. Sold under the brand names Coleman, Coleman Evcon, and Red T, the furnace can overheat causing splits in the heat exchanger which may allow flames to reach combustible materials in the MH. Health Canada tells MHProNews.com the recall covers twelve different models, some 225,000 furnaces in all, one percent of which are in Canada. The article says to immediately discontinue using the furnace until it has been inspected. For more information call 888 665 4640 weekdays.
